King Faisal Specialist Hospital, Medina

In September 2018, the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH&RC) announced that they were taking over the Meikat Hospital project in Medina, to make it a specialized hospital that is part of the KFSH&RC General Organization.

The project consists of a 300-bed main hospital, along with buildings for housing and support services.

Approximately 70% of the patient population will be adult and 30% will be pediatric.

The new King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center - Medina site is located outside of the Haram Area (Holy Area), in the southwest part of the city. (This means that non-Muslims may work at the hospital.)

The hospital opened in 2021.
